Defend yourselves against Cyber Attacks

There have been numerous reports and still numerous coming up of the title "Cyber Attacks". Websites all over the world, organizations that are very less secured and even personal computers that are connected to the Internet with less security are prone to Cyber Attack.

So, lets discuss what is a Cyber Attack first.A cyberattack is an attempt to undermine or compromise the function of a computer-based system, or attempt to track the online movements of individuals without their permission. Attacks of this type may be undetectable to the end user or network administrator, or lead to such a total disruption of the network that none of the users can perform even the most rudimentary of tasks. Because of the increasing sophistication of these kinds of network attacks, the development of effective software defenses is an ongoing process.

It is important to understand that a cyberattack can be relatively innocuous and not cause any type of damage to equipment or systems. This is the case with the clandestine downloading of spyware onto a server or hard drive without the knowledge or consent of the owner of the equipment. With this type of cyberattack, the main goal is usually to gather information that ranges from tracking the general movements and searches conducted by authorized users to copying and forwarding key documents or information that is saved on the hard drive or server. While the ultimate goal is to capture and transmit information that will help the recipient achieve some sort of financial gain, the spyware runs quietly in the background and is highly unlikely to prevent any of the usual functions of the system from taking place.

But, the good news is that these attacks can be defended against with the help of trainings like F5 training and lots more.
